Dec/12 - Scene - Xmas Mittens

Yogi here... Love this latest batch of Xmas rubber. This card came together really quickly, especially if you have a large scenic stamp to fill the area.

Stamped my scenic image (Stampendous "Forest Cottage Scene") with Versafine Black Onyx on a side folded white 5"w x 7"h card. Colored with Prisma colors. Added some white Puffy Velvet to the roofs and heat to puff, then squished it down a bit.

Stamped the sentiment on white cardstock with the black and clear embossed. Die cut with Spellbinders scalloped circle and sponged around the edges with Distress Worn Lipstick.

Drew out some mittens on a scrap of white cardstock, colored with Prisma colors and some Distress red, cut out, punched a hole on the edge of the mitten and on the die cut scallop. Tied together with some embroidery floss.  Adhered the scalloped circle to card front. Then added some white glue to the knot and added the white pearlescent star.

Die cut some snowflakes (Sizzix Tim's Mini snowflakes dies) from white cardstock, inked with Perfect Medium, clear embossed and while still hot and semi liquid, sprinkled Stampendous Crystal Snow glitter and gently pressed it into the hot embossed area using a scrap piece of release paper. Adhered to card.

Decided I wanted some texture around the edges of the card, so used Tim's embossing folder snowflakes border and my rubber mallet.

As a final touch added some cross hatching with a black Zig Writer to mimic sewing around the scenic design.
